Here is a link to the California Department of Consumer Affairs that contained their guidance regarding gift cards and gift certificates.
What can he do to prove that his citizenship is valid? And is it legal what his employer did?
First off, it's illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee based on their citizenship. If the employer mistakenly believed that your father was undocumented and was, as a result, not eligible to work in the country, then they probably did not violate the law. But, they can't simply fire him because he is not a citizen of the U.S. Many non-U.S. citizens have legal rights to work in the county.
With respect to your question, an employer cannot ask for information beyond what is required in the I-9 form. The I-9 form includes a list of acceptable documents. See https://www.uscis.gov/system/files_force/files/form/i-9-paper-version.pdf?download=1
If your father provided that information, his firing would be a violation of the law. If they didn't ask for an I-9 form and simply fired him because of his citizenship status, that too is a violation of the law.See question
My current employer refused to discipline the Supervisor who have made derogatory comments at the expense of my ethnic background. I have taken it to my current sups and beyond even the EOE.
There is no maximum. However, there is a minimum amount the case must be worth to file an unlimited case. That amount is $25,000.00. However, most employment discrimination and harassment claims exceed that minimum.
You should hire an attorney to litigate this type of case as there are other requirements that must be met to pursue and prove that the employee was wronged.See question
i have a verdict made by an israeli court (200,000$) against an israeli citizen who lives in Los Angeles.
You can enforce a final, unappealable foreign country judgment, such as one from an Israeli court, in California so long as it is not a judgment for taxes, penalties, divorce or similar. It requires a new action be filed in California and can get quiet complicated because you would have to prove all the facts supporting the enforceability of the judgment. The defendant also gets a chance to prove that it is not enforceable.
I strongly suggest you hire an attorney for this since it is a high value case.See question
Hi there. In March of 2015, I had to undergo a triple bypass open-heart surgery. While I was originally told that patients usually leave the ICU after a few days, I was there for a total of 12 days and had extremely strong antibiotics being admini...
You may be entitled to the delayed discovery of negligence rule that would provide a 3 year statute of limitations for medical malpractice and longer for the negligence/product defect case against the bypass machine manufacturer.
You should consult with counsel immediately. If you delay to long, you may not get the benefits of the delayed discovery rule.See question

It seems clear to me that you are an employee and not an independent contractor. You have a great case for failure to pay for hours work and overtime. You may also be able to obtain penalties for failure to provide meal breaks and rest breaks. The damages can be substantial depending on how long you have worked there and how many hours were cut.
You need to hire an attorney as soon as possible.See question
My husband started working for a construction company, basically as an independant contractor. His boss paid him cash even week, gave him no benefits or insurance for any job. On one job, my husband was tearing down a porch at a residence and fell...
In such a circumstance, your husband may have claims against one or both of the construction company and the home owner. However, that would require proving that either or both were negligent. Clearly the home owner has a duty to ensure that any visitor or worker at his/her home does not fall through the floor of their porch. However, if the business also knew or should have known of the defect and didn't protect your husband, the business could also be liable.
Did your husband have worker's compensation insurance for his own work? If so, he could also seek a claim against that policy.
Also, if your husband was misclassified as an independent contract and should have been an employee, he may be able to sue the business for this misclassification and for the costs of his injuries and lost income. California law is very strict about who is an employee or an independent contract. Their are penalties for an employer who misclassifies an employee.

I was hit by a car as I was walking down the cross-walk. The light changed as I was half-way through the cross-walk. The driver gave his information along with his Insurance policy #. It turns out that the driver's insurance lapsed the same month ...
A big piece of this is whether the car driver is the same as the car owner. If not, you may have multiple defendants to target. Also, do the police know of the accident? Was there a police report? If yes, then the police would have his contact information. If not, did you get his license plate and driver's license number? He can be tracked that way. Also, once you hire an attorney, your attorney can seek copies of video recordings from nearby businesses. You should not delay in hiring an attorney. These tapes get routinely deleted quickly.See question
I was unaware that a water hose was placed across the walk way which I tripped on, fell and broke my hip. I had to have a total hip replacement. Still suffering pain from this. It happened one year ago, last February 2016. The hose was connected t...
Creating a fall hazard by placing a hose across a walking path is generally considered negligence and give you a solid personal injury claim. The exception would be if you were sufficiently warned in advance of coming across the hose. When you contact an experienced attorney you should be prepared to discuss the circumstances surrounding the fall. When? Where? How? Was their a warning sign? Did someone verbally warn you? Was the hose concealed in some fashion? Was a report made?
Developing the facts early in the case will help you get the results you are looking for.
I hope you heal quickly and fully.See question
They sent me a severance letter of 10 pages and trying to take all my rights. Can someone read and give me just an advise how to proceed?
To give you guidance, we would need to have more information. Do you believe that your termination was wrongful in any way such as discriminatory or in retaliation for whistleblowing? Have they breached any agreements, oral or written, that you had with the company?
When you discuss this with an attorney, you should consider these questions and provide the severance agreement and any related documents such as any contracts or write-ups you may have.
I am sorry you have lost your position. These can be difficult times and obtaining good counsel is a good start to moving on.See question
